Last week on the Blog Hop we looked ahead at 2020. This week, A.S. Fenichel asks:
Two weeks into the New Year...tell me the good, the bad and the ugly. How were your holidays?
If you joined me from Leslie Hachtel, welcome!
Christmas holidays can be so hyped up that it is hard for the reality to match the anticipation. As for New Year’s Eve – I rarely make it to midnight. 😊
We still laugh about the first time we allowed our daughters to stay up to midnight on New Year’s Eve. It was when the calendar flipped to the new millennium, and since they were 7 and almost 6 at the time they were old enough to want the experience. We watched the countdown on TV and cheered Happy New Year, then there was a pause. “That’s it?” our oldest asked. “Pretty much,” we said. She shrugged and headed to bed.
Now the kids are older and we have two son-in-laws, balancing family time at the holidays can be stressful. But we may have found a lovely balance this year. We had the family over on Christmas Day to open gifts and visit, then they came back on Boxing Day for dinner. It was actually a great way to do it. We could take our time over presents without worrying about what was going on in the kitchen, and then on Boxing Day we had time for games as well.
How about you? How did your holidays go this year? Leave me a comment below, and I’ll be sure to reply. Then hop over and visit Caro Kinkead to hear about her good, bad and ugly!
Caro's new release, THE ACCIDENTAL VISCOUNTESS, is available everywhere!
Spinster and poor relation Dorothea Hindley is in London for one reason: to help launch her cousin into society, something that would be a great deal easier if Dorothea’s aunt hadn’t revived a long-standing feud with the mother of a viscount. The best Dorothea can expect for herself is a dreary marriage to a vicar. But in trying to keep her family from becoming the laughingstocks of London, Dorothea finds a surprising ally in the viscount himself.
Martin Drayton, Viscount Abernathy, can’t afford the distraction of the ancient feud his mother insists on reviving. King George III lies mad at Windsor Castle and Martin is involved in supporting the Prince of Wales’ cause in the Regency Bill. But when he enlists Dorothea’s help to cool the flames of the feud, their undeniable attraction simply adds fuel to the fire.
Marrying a viscount never entered Dorothea’s head. But a moonlit kiss could lead to a scandal neither of them can afford. Can the accidental viscountess and her unexpected husband get their families to stop feuding long enough to save both the monarchy and their marriage?
